Louie Rigano: Colour Space Light
Designed by London's Royal College of Arts graduate Louie Rigano, Colour Space Light physically layers CMYK colours to create unusual tonal mixes that play with the principles of colour theory.
The soft and ambient lighting design is created by printing a gradient of CMYK colours onto a diffusion film, which is hung over an acrylic rod in front of a line of LEDs. As the scrolling sheet is pulled down, the light shines through the translucent surface and alters the tonal mixes created. The precise gradient enables the light to travel through the entire colour spectrum for a mesmerising effect.
Transformative colour mixes that skew our perspectives and bring a digital influence into physical products are increasingly popular. For more inspiration, see our Colour Spectrum S/S 2017 report Reactive, and the accompanying Visual Update.
